A Walk With God


I found God among the silence of a long afternoon.

He was sitting in the sunshine and humming a little tune.

He said “Seek me when you’re tired and give thanks for what you have.

Seek me when your lonely and seek me when your sad.

My dear child, ” God said to me in the breeze.

“My way is not always an easy way but Grace does not come with ease.

Though you doubt your worth always and try to pick at broken seams

I made you very different and I’ll tell you what this means.

I made you full of Life with a Heart to feel Love and Pain.

I made you to show Mercy even where Mercy’s received in vain.

I made you so that your smile could brighten another’s day.

I gave you the gift of forgiveness to show others along the way.

The path that I’ve made for you is one of Joy and Strife.

With choices that I’ve left you and opportunities in your Life.

I know sometimes you forget me or you think that I’m not there

But remember you’re my child and I made you strong enough to bare-

All the pains that plague you and all the Fear and doubts.

You are strong enough to face them to live Life and push them out.

Remember that you are wonderful I try to show you everyday

With little things that matter and better things along the way.

Help others who are around you and touch as far as you can

Because Life is sometimes lonely with your neighbor you can stand.

Remember you are my child and you’ll know this much is true

I’m with you in every walk you take and everything you do.'

    We all need God, although sometimes having everything, we think we do not need Him.
    But you do, I am glad.strong and full of conviction. Love it.
    Thank you.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
